How do inflatables work?


Cold Air Units – Stitched

Advantages

  • A variety of light to medium-weight fabrics can be used
  • If the unit is punctured the blower ensures it stays inflated
  • Can achieve intricate design and detail
  • Inexpensive to freight
  • Packs small for efficient storage
  • Light weight and easy to inflate – one or two people can inflate
  • Can withstand strong winds if properly secured
  • Printing of branding easy and effective
  • Easy to repair

Disadvantages

  • Some light-weight fabrics can be difficult to clean
  • Need electricity for blower

Sealed Units – Hot Air Welded

Advantages

  • You do not need a constant power supply
  • t is made from 550g PVC upwards, so very durable
  • Can be moved from one place to another easily

Disadvantages

  • Made out of heavier fabric
  • If the unit gets punctured, it deflates
  • We cannot do a unit under 2m
  • Limits design and detail
  • Printing on sealed units can be difficult

Helium Units

Advantages

  • Without a doubt the best visibility and brand exposure
  • Best suited for promotions, launches, special occasions – short 2-4 day use

Disadvantages

  • Helium gas is very expensive
  • Blimps cannot fly in winds greater than 25km/hour
  • The helium units come in white, so branding can either be done on
  • detachable banners OR we can print a full “sock” to cover the unit
  • We cannot make a helium unit smaller than 3m
  • You cannot fly the unit near buildings, overhead power lines, higher than 30m, near trees or anything upon which the unit can snag
